Here is more evidence that the Government would like
to see the end of rural life in Britain in order to
herd the masses into towns and cities full of CCTV cameras.
Depriving villages of vital services is one way of encouraging
rural depopulation and discouraging community spirit.
Nearly half of communities have seen the loss of key
local services in the past four years, a report reveals.
Towns and villages across the country are losing basic
amenities such as post offices, GP surgeries, shops
and schools at a record rate.
The Government-commissioned report found that 45 per
cent of England's neighbourhoods - 14,493 out of 32,439
- are more 'geographically deprived' than they were
It concludes that communities are declining at their
'fastest rate ever', prompting claims that Labour has
presided over the 'slow death of community life'.
Critics have accused Labour of masterminding the 'near
certain death of the village post office' with its plans
to close 2,500 branches by the end of the year.
One in 13 rural primary schools has closed since Labour
came to power, and more are under threat as new Whitehall
rules mean schools could lose funding by failing to
fill their places.
Village GP surgeries are also at risk as the Government
promotes its new 'polyclinics'.

enables more power-grabbing by the Government, hence
the attempted destruction of both as we know them. Shame
on these people.)
